Healthy Living Accelerator Grants - Originally launched in 2017, our Healthy Living Accelerator Grant Program seeks to fund programs and initiatives that (1) align with our Healthy Living focus by addressing the inter-connectedness of healthy eating, active lifestyles and positive environments, (2) influence behavior change and advance the health of Massachusetts residents and (3) scale an existing model or jump starts a new idea.
In response to COVID-19, we have reallocated our 2020 grant funding to support relief efforts across the state for non-profits serving the needs of our communities’ most vulnerable populations.
